Stats for January 15, 2020


1st Charles Reinke played a nearly unprecedent 6 games thanks to a pair of two-on-ones, and finished 5-1 +384. In the first round, he faced off against Dave and Andy. Against Dave, Charles recorded his only loss of the night, 376-412. Dave played READIES and LOANERS, and was aided by Charles challenging his valid FRIGS (FRIG is both a verb and a noun, the noun form pluralizes as FRIGES). In his other game, Andy struck first with ASTHENY, and later added TONSURE, but Charles played MONGEESE and EMPORIA and won 447-420. His game against Bryan went a lot smoother, with him winning handily 447-305 while playing ESPANOL (Bryan later put an S on that, but ESPANOLES is the only plural) and CORTINS. In the third round, he was part of the "two" in the two-on-one, facing Thomas. He had his best bingoing performance, playing PUNDITS, SOILAGES, and the nine-letter EMBODIERS. Thomas got a nine-letter bingo of his own, ITERATION, but it was still Charles' win 492-362. He once again played two in the final round, this time Helen and Andy (again). He beat Helen 398-295 with a sole bingo of DOGTAILS (DOGSTAIL is also acceptable). In his rematch with Andy, he again came out on top in a close one, 406-388. Andy bingoed with DETAINEE one short of a triple word score, allowing Charles to play WEBS for 75, which helped him earn the win.

2nd Thomas Reinke came in second at 3-2 +136, the only other player with a winning record. He played Mark in all four rounds, starting off with a loss, 378-495. Mark played HOLSTERS, PLAINED, and DRAFTIER while Thomas only bingoed with the Collins-only LITEROSE*. Things swung wildly in Thomas' direction in the next game, as he held Mark bingo-less and played four of his own: INTIMAE, LETHALS (n. LETHAL, a death-causing genetic defect), BANGERS, and STURDIER in a 499-287 win. In the third round, he attempted to play in two dictionaries at once, British with Mark and Good Old Normal American English against Charles. He was reasonably successful; despite his 362-492 loss against Charles, he didn't play any British-only words. He won against Mark 495-418, with Mark playing AMATIVE (adj. amorous) and TREPANS, and Thomas playing VIZIERS, REACTORS, and BROILED. Freed from the shackles of dictionary-confusion in the last round, he won once again, 474-380. His best play that games was CATFACES for 95, which also won word-of-the-week. A CATFACE is a deformity of some fruit, which is a lot less cute than I was imagining.
